FINALLY got a 3080.

gamers nexus video about 4 vs 2 sticks for zen 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UkGu6A-6sQ

>> No.78611003

Gamers Nexus is a retard who doesn't understand how memory ranks work.
Of course 4 sticks of single-rank memory is faster than 2 stick of single-rank memory because of how memory interleaving works.
But 2 sticks of dual-rank memory is a couple percent faster yet and is the sweet spot right now, while going to 4 sticks of dual-rank memory actually reduces performance because memory controllers daisy chain further memory sticks in your two channels.

That's the promised support but afaik no leaks indicate a new socket for Zen 4. And past claims like AM4 can't take PCI-E gen 4 were clearly false... So I wouldn't be surprised if they managed to cram DDR5 in that as well.

Get a bronze or gold PSU

Gonna give it another shot in this thread.

I have a Cooler Master MWE Gold 750W PSU.
My system doesnt really draw more than 600W at ultra heavy loads, but it would be nice to have space to upgrade in the future.
My power grid is dirty as fuck and I get regular brownouts.

I want to buy an UPS but I dont really want to spend more than ~200 bucks. Problem is, I hear simulated sine wave causes issues with some modern PSUs ( I am pretty sure the active PFC of the PSU could cause issues with the simulated sine since it reads it as bad input, and thus just shut down the system immediately once the UPS switches to battery) and pure sines seem to be over my budget considering the draw of my PSU.

Am I getting something wrong here? Do you guys have UPS recommendations?

For the mobo your best bet is to decide on features you want (chipset, USB, networking, etc.) and read reviews+testing of the boards that fit your needs. If you just need "a motherboard" my standard answer is the B550-A Pro. No frills but well built and does a little of everything. Other boards are available.

For RAM just search 3600C16 2*16 and sort by lowest price. If you want to actually OC it (and not just turn XMP on) then the Trident Z RGB stuff you picked is fine (think it's Hynix AFR). Best to consult some RAM overclocking resources for what revision you're getting. 16GB kits of 3600 16-16-16-32 XMP would be a tip top tier bin but might be achievable with manual OC on a good bin.

Everything looks solid for your needs, considering the future upgrade plans, although I'd only caution you (unless you already know!) about the GPU compatibility for future card purchasing options. - 330 x 121 x 43 mm

Looks good. Only real inefficiency is the black version CPU cooler since your case isn't windowed. On the topic of the case you might want to go for a more "conventional" SFF case as HTPC ones make compromises to fit into TV cabinets.

I thought about that, I had the 600 in initially but since this system will only use like 250W at maximum I downgraded. You're probably right.

Fractal Design Node 202 was my original choice for this build but as it turns out it needs additional parts because it tends to recirculate the hot hair inside, I haven't seen anything very wrong with the Silverstone yet, all the other cases on pcpartpicker look extremely dull or ugly.

I mean that there's certain design goals they had to meet to fit the case into a TV cabinet that might not benefit a user that is going to put it on their desk. That is to say that it has to be relatively thin, work on its side, have the front and back IO accessible, and so on. There's not necessarily any drawbacks to using it on a desk but the design parameters for desktop use are different. For example, a desktop ITX case doesn't have to be particularly thin (which frees up height for the GFX card), it can be tall as well since desk space is only really limited by the horizontal (which allows for larger, quieter fans), it can have the IO on the side or top (which can free up space for air intake), etc. I'm not saying you shouldn't buy it by any stretch. Just be aware there might be a better option for your money. Or there might not. Every case is a juxtaposition of compromises.

Still prob gonna wait for the 6800xt or 6800 because the 3070 scalp prices are fucked tho.

>> No.78615947

I seriously thought about the 5800x to get an 8c16t, but I mostly use my PC for gaming and gaming performance is pretty much identical between 5600x and 5800x. the 5800x is just a horrible deal, it's almost 50% more expensive and comes with no cooler, for 2% more performance

Paid MSRP, most stores in aus had plenty of 5600x stock at msrp.

I bought a b550 board that didn't come updated. my board has bios flash which made it pretty easy to update the bios with no cpu.

Ryzen 5 3600 is a 4 pin fan power for the cooler. I saw no other lead from the CPU.

The mobo has no 8 pin header for the CPU AFAIK: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/B550M-PRO-VDH-WIFI/Overview

Pretty sure I carefully plugged the power and front panel leads, per the Fine Manual. To be sure, I will remove the GPU (which is in the way) and check again.

N00b at this. Installation directions have no words, just pics. You have been a great help.

PSU is overkill. MSI boards, bar the most expensive ones, have worse on-board audio, if you care about it. Ventus is trash. Also, why not utilize the PCIe 4.0 with 980 pro (I know, it's not really pro and more of a 980 EVO Plus now, but still)?

>> No.78616428

Well, plugging in the 8 pin CPU power cable solved the screaming fans. I now have video and everything.

Thanks very much guys. Now I just need to figger out how to get it setup and install some OS from USB.

I don't use onboard audio, I need optical on my mobo to use my dac though. I actually did buy an EVO plus, so oops on my screenshot.
As for the PSU, I heard that the 3080 had power spike issues that meant that 1000 watt power supplies were recommended.

I am in the BIOS 5 menu, but see no means of setting the RAM speed at 3600, which the RAM is rated at. It says it's running at 2666 now.

Is there anyone willing to walk me through the setup process? I am n00bish, as is obvious, but listen well and learn quickly. Failing that, where should I find information that will enable me to get my new computer setup?

well first question for you. do you overclock at all? you don't need to buy stuff based solely on worthington's law especially motherboards. if you're just looking to play video games there's a very wide selection of good b550 boards. if you need a boatload of i/o you can step up to x570 and go from there.

i mean if you're already spending on a 5900 what's another $400 :)

if you want 1440p (and amd marketing benchmarks are to be believed) a 6800 should do the trick, maybe bump up to 6800xt if you demand 144+fps. hopefully we will good benchmarks and even more hopefully we get them before the 18th.
